I have an twist tray jenn-air ice maker that I've replaced the tray resently and it I've noticed that the tray never fills up completly or the machine only make about six ice cube a cycle. We use a lot of ice and we constantly run out but if the tray would fill up as designed, we wouldn't have a problem. My question is, what can I do to increase the amount of water that goes into the tray at the filling cycle so that the tray fills to its proper level?

The wire like switch that hovers above the icemaker needs to be in the up most position. This shuts the water valve off to the ice maker. Remove the maker tray and dump the existing ice. When changing the filter, twist off and remove as per the directions that come with the replacement filter. Hand tighten and do not twist on with a wrench. The rubber seals are soft and make a positive seal with out too much force.
With the arm up in the ice tray, the water solenoid valve should be closed. When the arm drops, that tells the ice maker to open the water solenoid valve to fill the ice maker tray. It sound like the leak is at the inlet side of the water solenoid valve. On some models its not easy to get to, but follow the water line to it. Hope this is it for you. Good luck.
Unplug water control valve for the ice maker side on rear of freezer. If water continues to flow replace the water control valve If you already tried that the bring me up to date on just what you have tried and how long this has been happening. Sea Breeze
Check that there wasn't a clog in the line after replacing the filter. Make sure you get water going to the solenoid, if so, it may either be a clog in the solenoid or a fluke that it's no longer working.
I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!
You could have a layer of solid ice at the bottom of your icetray which is binding everything up. Remove ice tray and any ice from the bottom. Reinstall and be careful of the connection on the back of the ice tray, you may have to turn it a little to get it to mesh correctly. refill and try. Good luck.
